North Chico Specific Plan Village Core Re-Visioning and Design Plan
Due by 5 p.m. on June 8, 2020
The planning effort includes coordination with the City of Chico, area property owners, and a “re-visioning” of the Village Core Area with an emphasis on increased residential development and density. This effort will take place in tandem with the City of Chico’s separate process to investigate and plan infrastructure needs relating to sewer and water service, and the Contractor should plan to coordinate with the City on this process. By conducting the public outreach about the project and developing a design plan that can be readily incorporated by the City of Chico into their general plan and zoning (after annexation), the plan will expedite overall build-out of this underutilized area and provide a variety of housing types that are urgently needed within the area in the aftermath of the Camp Fire.
The intent of this planning effort is to meet current and future needs in the areas of housing, sustainability, quality of life, and economic development. The project will update existing constraints, provide for a mix of housing types, including multi-family and low-income, recommend internal and external circulation routes working in coordination with the City’s Infrastructure Plan, and include a mix of commercial uses that will help reduce VMT and provide jobs. The plan must address all existing site constraints, including FEMA flood zones, localized flooding and drainage, Airport Compatibility Zones, riparian areas, and biological resources. Public engagement concerning this plan is critical to its success. Several individual property owners make up the village core area. The Contractor will need to hold meetings with the owners as well as the surrounding property owners who make-up the remainder of the North Chico Specific Plan area in developing the revised vision and plan.
